LibriVox recording of The Night Side of New York by Various.
Read by Grant Hurlock.

This nonfiction collection of sketches, by "members of the New York press," takes the reader on a tour of 1866 New York City after dark, with stops along the way to vividly depict scenes ranging from the splendid to the squalid - but focusing largely on the latter! (Summary by Grant Hurlock)

Reviews

Reviewer: Mr. Br. - - October 27, 2012
Subject: Listen at your own risk
Boring, tiresome and, in at least one chapter, endlessly anti-semitic.
Reviewer: Timothy Ferguson - - October 25, 2012
Subject: I really liked this
This is a collection of short pieces, written supposedly by a group of anonymous reporters from New York newspapers. Each piece focuses on a type of venue that stays open late into the New York night, late in the Nineteenth Century. It’s a fantastic little series, describing the eateries, clubs, police stations and theatres: the whole midnight nation of the metropolis.
